Online Photo Tools
I am giving a workshop in early April on using flickr. It’s the last in a digital photography workshop series at my library, because, after people learn how to use and take nice pictures with their digital camera, the flickr workshop will show them one option for doing something with those digital pictures.

I thought I’d get a jump on preparing for it, by compiling a list of websites I’d like to mention in addition to flickr - not just online photo sharing websites, but websites that let you edit photos, sites that have free archives of photos, etc.

In the process of working on it, it occurred to me that it’d be worthwhile to post it here, too. It’s a long list, but certainly not all-inclusive, so if your favorite isn’t listed here, please share.

Photo Sharing:

flickr.com - my favorite photo sharing website
Webshots.com - Photos for social networking
PhotoBucket.com - Photo hosting and sharing
Snapfish.com - Sharing and printing photos
Picasa - Google’s photo sharing service
KodakGallery.com - Kodak’s online photo service

Photo Editing:

Picnik.com - editor linked with flickr
Splashup.com - very similar to Photoshop (perhaps not for the novice)
PXN8.com - easy-to-use editor
Phixr.com - easy-to-use editor
Fotoflexer.com - easily add effects and distortions to photos
ShrinkPictures.com - resize photos
Graphita.com - add word balloons, captions and objects to photos

Image Archives:

Creative Commons - photos with creative commons license
PublicDomainPictures.net - all types of photos
U.S. National Archives - historical and other government photos
NASA Earth Observatory - earth and planet photos
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - sea, air and other science photos
Great Images in NASA - historical NASA photos
DK Clip Art - travel and other photos from the DK books
morgueFILE.com - royalty-free photos
Wikipedia list of public domain image resources

Other flickr-related Information:

Also, this list will probably change a bit closer to the workshop.
